§ Sir T. Dugdale
asked the Secretary of State for the Horne Department whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to offer members of the regular police force serving in the Forces release under Class B; and, if so, on what date offers will have been made in all cases.
§ Mr. Ede
Class B release is offered to all police officers serving in the Armed Forces, with the exception of a comparatively small proportion who have to be retained on grounds of military necessity. I understand from the Service Departments that authority for Class B release has been given in the case of all men who are eligible, except for a very few cases in which there has been difficulty in tracing a particular man.
